I.e. Throughout La Belle's entire time there she called la Bête ugly several times, including her father.
and when he asked she told him he was to ugly to even consider it.
Showing that no matter how "nice la Belle is" compared to her sisters affection is skin deep.
It was only after he transformed into a "Gorgeous prince" did she stop behaving as a Independant woman, and became a floppy girl swooning over a prince.
Something I noticed about halfway throught this piece is that la Bête is quite a dispicable character. he threated La Belle's father and told him to bring a daughter in his place, firstly whydidn't he just never go back into the woods it did appear la Bête would never leave his home parimiter.
2ndly Once la Bête finally got La Belle, he was trying to make this stranger love him. Why did he not kill her like he said he would!?
Its like he tricked her father into giving away a daughter because he wanted a companion.
It did appear to me like he was incredibly subserveant to Belle, she became what it seemed he wanted which was a dominatrix. He would say "I will do what you ask me" and would ask her in a quite, delicate voice "Please do not gaze upon me".
It was strange...
The ending of the film seemed sad and rushed. Sad because the mislead 'avenant' attempted to steal from la Bête with the key her misrable sister stole from her. on that note one thing I noticed was in all of these fairy tales if the main character happens to be female she and just happens to have sibling sisters, they are always older and horrible. I believe the creator of these fairy tales probably had very bad siblings/ knew of someone else who did.
But I digress, He got shot by a guardian protecting the tresure, and once he was shot he instantly turned into a beast; which makes me think maybe la Bête was just a theif who tried to get the riches in that place and didn't know that gaurdian was there at the time. "Neither you nor I can enter".
Once the Avenant was shot it was almost like they swapped physical appearance, so whoever that statue shot, la Bête would of taken on thier face.
It felt rushed because after the shooting he wanted to take her to his kingdom at the end of it all ( I dont recall either one of them questioning why he was no longer la Bête) and they flew away into the sky. If he's kingdom was in the sky wasn't he up there already? was he punished by stealing treausre and sent to live down on earth untill he, somehow, gt changed back.
The guyver was based around a "bio suited armor" which was contained in box with things which looked like worms around an old film reel, the worm things moved too.
once it graphted on to its host, namely Sho they would have the bug inside of them and would be able to activate it at will.
When you see the intro (if you dont watch the anime) you'll see that he has two unsual prongs (maybe) that move like insect raidars that behave as ears I think (don't really remeber) They could move backwards and forwards on his head. concluding that His bio suit was also possibly some sort of animal ish suit..
But the cartoon is a must.
The guyver unlike many of the other films I've seen portraying man/animal hybrids, dosen'f use it in a sexual way. i.e. Minatours and other half man/animal mixtures are used to show sexuality/ ferilatiy..
however the guyver uses it to described them as losing a concience/soul when they change, they are left as feroscious beasts.
Today we watched Cat People, (1980) which was another film which paved the way for many other films to carry on from where they left of..
The cat people was a "film noir" which tend to specialise in using "light effects" to create a many feelings in the audience. Lighting to show importance to a certain obj/character, to bring suspense, or to emphasise a scary moment.
"The Cat People" is film that uses 'the Horror of suggestion'.
The movie due to its low budget used orchestral music and lighting to make up for the finacial lack it had which made it a dramatical Hollywood 'B' Movie.
One of the men who worked on this move called Val Luten, actually had a phobia of cats and being touched and is a possible muse for the actual creator of the piece.
The movie used the greates tool for manipulating people's emotions, The power of suggestion no matter how subtle. Evidence where this has been used is when "Alice" was walking through a dark allyway and was being stalked by the main actress, she eventually got to bus stop and before we could see it the bus made a loud almost creature like roar before appering (which
made me think "Alice" was about to be pounced on by a panther.

Yes I noticed there was only 1 black character in the entire movie, and they gave minor roles at best, she was waitress, (not suprissing) and was never thanked for bringing them food, (again no suprise) shows the lack of politness due to the way people thought back then.
There was foreshadowing when 'Lorna' First let Oliver in, he looked at her statue of King john who defended her country from The"witches"of the night. He did so by impaling them with his sword, which ends up happening to her when she bamboozled by her therapist, who only wanted to kill her for being different.
The movie left me sad and rather empty.. At the end of the movie Lorna is tricked into revealing her 'true self' by her heinous therapist, who, once she changed, puled out a sword cane and began to attack her after giving her false hope of acceptance "I don't care what you are".
She killed him and got away. She arrived back at the zoo and freed the black panther,
when she did this I expected the panther to slowly collaborate with 'Lorna'; but when I saw the panther just push past her I felt so sorry for her, it was like the only other being that she felt she was accepted by rejected her. In my mind i think that was what killed her, having no one to be her ally.
(I may include more on this story when I am able to write this from my note book)
I would definetly Like to improve my skill at this kind of..art work.
(Just noticed the extra s-horse in the background...)
In the end my render still seems to of come out as 72 resolution even though in "Maya's" render setting it was set to 640 x 480, 300 res.
Never mind for now, Its done.
